Spay all animals that aren't suitable breeding animals (conformation, temperment, etc.) Stop breeding very common horses as these are very common in auctions (Tbs, qtr horses, arabs, paints (w/ and w/o markings) Standarbreds) Stop going to races and betting on horses, sorry really don't see a point in this. Don't register animals that approve of slaughter. Truth be told is everything mentioned above means money. And people aren't willing to spend even more money on a 'useless' animal. Instead they try and milk it for all it's worth. To me I'd rather see a good animal be put to sleep, rather than having it suffer, and shame on those who put money before the safety or care of their animals. Slaughter = greed
yea and what about those who can't afford euthanasia?? Did you think about that? I approve HUMANE slaughter. Slaughter doesn't = greed. I wouldn't slaughter an animal for the money, but if I couldn't afford to humanely put it down, id definitely send my horse to a humane slaughter house. I agree with slaughter. Don't tell me slaughter is greedy blah blah. You need to honestly face the facts. Do you think deer hunting is cruel? What about all other types of slaughter (pigs, chickens, cows, etc.) if your not against those types of slaughter then your one heck of a hypocrite.
